Mangoes have been on sale lately and despite their obvious non-local status, I just can't say no to mangoes. Hence, yesterday's breakfast:
With banana, coconut flakes, flax meal, and ginger. Basically the other morning's smoothie, minus the spinach and pre-blender.
Yesterday's lunch was the salad the night's before dinner was intended to be (how ungrammatical is that sentence?):
kale salad with tomato, red pepper, carrot, sweet potato, and tempeh in hummus dressing.
Dinner was miso soup. It was good, but that's boring. Dessert was another cookie I had baked a while back and found in the fridge: Peanut Butter criss cross cookies, again from VCIYCJ. Although, the dough was a bit crumbly so I didn't want to flatten them too much. Hence, only one fork pat: I guess you could call these peanut butter criss cookies.
Topped with extra peanut butter, they tasted like nutter butters!
The thing is, I don't really like peanut butter. I bought the PB to make these cookies for other people - then I realized I didn't have vanilla extract so I randomly used coffee extract - then I overbaked the cookies etc etc until I basically didn't want to serve these cookies to anyone. They aren't bad so I'm slowly making my way through them and in the meantime also trying to get rid of the rest of the jar of PB.
Breakfast this morning:
Warm oatmeal with pb, banana, rice milk, and cinnamon. With Irish breakfast tea.
My allergies, or something else, have been acting up lately, though, so I'll probably do some sort of elimination diet soon, targeting soy and corn (G and I have been enjoying late night popcorn recently) and of course no more grosso PB.
Anyway, today will probably be on the busy side: there is another vegan pop up shop at Pine Box Rock Shop (which I may or may not make it to), a zine fest at Public Assembly (totally going), and then tonight, G's band, the Marsh Hens, (yes, he's a drummer as well as a talented cartoonist) is playing a show.
